By Felix Melendez

It is obvious we are facing hard times and economy is not as good as five years ago. All kind of industries have been affected especially tourism worldwide. The negative impact is just creating a positive one but also more promotional attractive offers. There are options to avoid cancelling your vacations. I am sure you do not imagine how simple it is.
A concern during downturn economy is to save money and find ways to reduce our expenses. The way people are planning vacations is changing dramatically. Years ago customers used to visit travel agencies to complete reservations and get information on destinations, airfares or just to check a price. Today, all information you need is available via internet. If we want to get different results, we have to make some changes. Here is my recommendation. From now on stop traveling as a customer and consider to travel as an industry representative.
They enjoy privileges just because they are company members. This is exactly what happen in tourism industry. Just to give you an idea let me ask you something. Why customer pay a vacation package more expensive than a travel agent? Why a cruise line associate pays a different rate? Why an airline may give a special price to an employee? The answers to all questions are very simple. You pay as a customer and they pay as an industry member or representative. The difference in some cases is around 25% to 50 % in savings, may be more.
There is no reason to cancel your next vacations. We all know people search for fares they can afford. Nobody is looking to pay the highest price available to go on vacations. There are companies accessible to you to enjoy the privilege to travel with your family at special member rates. Despite the economy crisis a lot of people will be traveling this year. It is possible some companies may require some fees. Don't worry about how much you may pay to get better rates. Notice how much you are willing to pay in a long term period. Next time you make reservations think about it. Customer always pays full rates and industry members save a lot more. Remember that save money is a rule in hard times.
